    The HTC Desire 700 looks pretty reasonable if only the ram was 2GB and the screen res was at least 720p and was priced below the nexus 5 then it would be relatively enticing.

    The Desire 700 might be designed to look like the One, but apart from physical screen size, its specs across the board are below what the One has. The One has a 4.7 inch screen, and the Desire 700 has a 5 inch screen.
